Wishing, Dry Mix, Fall Mantle, Table runner & Boxes


I am wishing I would have planned better for more of a fall harvest!  I am still picking my bowls of lettuce which I am enjoying.  Next year I hope to do better growing more things for this time of year.


I pulled the last of the carrots from the box on the deck.  Still have a few more growing that I planted later in the cold frame.


No more raspberries!  We will look forward to next year!


I cut some more parsley to dry.  Hoping it turns out as well as the previous cuttings that I dried.


I made up a dry Ranch Dressing mix.  I found it on another blog but don't remember which one.  I guess I should keep better records, do ya think!  I really like it.


Decorating does not seem to be my talent!  This is basically my fall mantle decorations every year!  Happy Halloween!


I made up another fall 10 minute table runner and used black with it this time instead of the green.  It didn't take me quite as long as the other day to do it!!!!


The lettuce is up that I planted in the cold frame.  That is spinach on the right side that I planted earlier.


I came up with this make-shift cold frame over some more lettuce and spinach.  Hoping to keep it going for awhile yet.


I am so excited!!  My wonderful gardener is making me three more square foot gardening boxes for next year so that I will have more room to grow things.  We plan to do the lasagna gardening type thing so they will be ready to plant in the spring.  He is going to come up with some fine wire tops for them so that I can take the tops off and on to keep the bugs and COCO from eating my produce!  These boxes will be placed outside of our little gardening fence.  If anyone has any suggestions or ideas for that please let us know.  I love my gardener! Shhhhhh.  hehehehe


This is my constant under my feet companion that eats all my vegetables!  She doesn't look like she would be quilty of doing that, do you think!

Your table runner looks very nice. What a great time to get together with friends to sew (your last post).

Now is the time to start thinking about next years garden. Have a wonderful day.

My dog does the same thing. We put up a fence to keep her out of the garden and she just jumps it. Time for a higher fence.

Hi Cheryl, Thanks! Are you planning anything different for your next years gardens? You grow so much! It is always fun to sit in the recliner when it is snowing and think about those things! Come again! Nancy

Hi Peggi, Coco does jump over our little fence a couple times or so a summer! We would not trade her tho for all the tea in China! Thanks for visiting. I will be over to check out your blog! Come again! Nancy

I too wish I had planned better for more of a fall harvest but time has a way of slipping by and then it is too late.
Your dog is so cute. No, she would not eat your veggies, got to be some other critter.

Hi Norma Chang, Good luck to both of us planning next year's fall gardens! When I catch Coco with a tomato or carrot in her mouth I guess she has to fess up to being the guilty one! lol Thanks for visiting. Come again! Nancy

How fun, new beds. I wish I had someone to make things like that for me, but sadly I have to do it myself.

Your new raised bed are going to be a nice addition to your gardens. They look wonderful. 10 minute table runner - it's a beauty! The black really sets off the pattern well. So did the green I thought in your last post. Your carrots look SO SO good!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Emily Sincerely, Thanks! I am looking forward to additional planting space! Glad you could visit. Come again! Nancy

Growing fall crops takes some experience, each year you add to the experience level and build on prior successess. Your cold frame boxes look great and your garden helper pup is darling.

Hi Nancy!
Your carrots almost look too pretty to eat! We haven't tried growing carrots yet, and yours give me inspiration. Your spinach is ahead of ours. I've replanted twice and they're just now peeking up. Love your new raised bed frame. That puppy looks too sweet to be naughty!

Hi Lisa, Thanks for visiting! This is the best year yet for me growing carrots! Looks are deceiving when it comes to Coco! lol Really she is a good little furbaby! Come again! Nancy
